Critical Care USA

Critical care nursing is the field of nursing with a focus on the care of the critically ill or unstable patients. Critical care nurses can be found working in a wide variety of environments and specialties, such as emergency departments and the intensive care units.

Most critical care nurses in the U.S. are registered nurses. Due to the unstable nature of the patient population the LPN/LVN's are rarely utilized in a primary care role in the intensive care unit. However, with proper training and experience LPN/LVN's can play a significiant role in providing exceptional bedside care for the critically ill patient.

Nurses in the US who wish to obtain certification in critical care nursing can do so through a national advisory board, known as the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. This advisory board sets and maintains standards for critical care nurses. The certification offered by this board is known as CCRN.

The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is the largest multiprofessional organization dedicated to ensuring excellence and consistency in the practice of critical care.

With 14,000 members in 80 countries, SCCM is the only organization that represents all professional components of the critical care team. The Society offers a variety of activities that promote excellence in patient care, education, research, and advocacy.
